Eddie Johnson's goals, Freddy Adu's assist

American forward Eddie Johnson scored twice, the first on a well-directed header set up nicely by compatriot Freddy Adu, as Aris defeated Olympiakos, 2-0, in a Greek league playoff match:

Freddy Adu needs to come back to DC United...

Adu drew a PK as well. I liked EJ's goals. The second was particularly sweet.

a lot of defenders standing around flatfooted on that first goal

That is GOOD news

I wish whoever made this video had included more angles of each play...

Well done Freddy Adu & EJ. Now step up again in the next round! Hope they are getting a paycheck - tough times in the Greek state these days

The mid-1980's WWF tag team Killer Bees of B. Brian Blair and Jumping Jim Brunzell called - they want their uniforms back.

It's time to stop grumbling about our forwards who have not lived up to expectations. If this cycle teaches anything, it is that we need a large pool of talent from which to draw. Adu and Johnson will still be in consideration when the next cycle starts (though I doubt they will be on the plane).

That was some pretty shambolic defending on the 2nd goal, almost West Ham bad....

I particularly liked that Johnson didn't take the (possible) pk foul and kept his feet to score. Trusts his ability, it would seem to me.

Who was the babe at 2:16? Holy smokes.

Totally agree. No matter how much Garber whines to Bradley about it, that crowd has got to put the fire in you more than one in KC. MLS prepares you for World Cup play like high school algebra prepares you to be an astrophysicist.

Totally agree, that is, with the comments about grumbling about our forwards not meeting expectations. God bless them for staying out of the imposed mediocrity of MLS, where PT and Parity are guaranteed.

She looked tense. Someone should give her a massage.

Enough of the hate on MLS. I'd take a prolific scorer in MLS (Edson Buddle) or MFL (Hercules Gomez) over Johnson or Adu in the Greek League, who play for the Dundee United of Greek Football.

Well done Freddie and EJ. Love to see EJ rising and burying headers; kid can jump out of the gym. Adu looked like he was a handful.

Buddle, Gomez, EJ, Adu ... bring 'em all.

Sign that goalkeeper! He kept makin clutch finger tip saves, and kept a clean sheet. When was the last time a DCU goalie could do that? Or, ever?
